Liverpool signing responds to Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville
The Liverpool number one reacts to criticism from Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville
Loris Karius has insisted that he isn’t fazed by criticism from Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville ahead of Liverpool’s clash against West Ham United on Sunday.
The Merseyside outfit lost 4-3 to Bournemouth in the Premier League last weekend after Jurgen Klopp’s side twice conspired to surrender a two-goal lead before conceding three times in the final 16 minutes.
Karius was criticised for his role in two of Bournemouth’s second-half goals, including Nathan Ake’s added-time winner after the German shot stopper’s poor handling allowed the on-loan Chelsea defender to score.
The Liverpool goalkeeper’s performance was singled out by Carragher and Neville in Sky Sports’ subsequent analysis on the seven-goal thriller on Sunday afternoon.
However, Karius insists he isn’t worried about criticism from the Sky Sports pundits as the Liverpool man looks to allay fears over his quality after a shaky start to life at Anfield.
“Carragher was here at Liverpool for a long time so maybe after the game he was a bit frustrated,” Karius told The Daily Mail.
“He is probably still a supporter. I have to accept it.
“What critics say right after the game, I don’t know what I think. If you asked them again would they say it now?
“And I don’t care what Gary Neville said. He was a top player, then he was a manager for a short bit and now he is back to being an expert again.
“But he is always very critical. I think he does it to everyone. I just hope that when I do well he will comment on that. We will see in the future.”
Karius moved to Liverpool in a £4.7m deal from Bundesliga outfit Mainz 05 in the summer transfer window.
